Training Centre

An inspirational learning space in a modest industrial unit on a trading estate in Slough. Aspire is a unique project that brings together a broad range of users; from school children to company directors. The hybrid design blends classroom with office with factory.

“It’s a really joyful space. It brings a smile to the face of everyone who walks through the doors for the first time. Manalo & White designed a centre which every visitor is able to adapt to in their own way and where we have the flexibility to deliver innovative development activities that benefit the whole community. In the words of one 13-year old visitor, ‘it’s brilliant here, Miss. We love your centre!’”

“Manalo & White had the unenviable task of turning an ordinary building into something extraordinary, which would be welcoming to both CEO’s and schoolchildren alike. Through a deft series of imaginative and inspired alterations they have conjured up an exciting yet calm interior which is an ideal learning environment.”
